Man of 1,000 Voices
From the documentary I Know That Voice to Lake Bell's drama In a World..., our awareness of voice actors hasn't been this high since Mel Blanc died. One champion of that most ancient of human arts -- the ability to throw one's voice so that people actually care about catching it -- is James Arnold Taylor, and during his 80-minute, one-man show, Talking to Myself, you'll hear his lovable larynx morph into more than 150 characters, with interactive multimedia accompanying his golden throat. You'll hear Fred Flintstone, Green Arrow, Johnny Test and Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as actors like Johnny Depp and Clive Owen -- he's even the voice of the Strawberry Mini-Wheat. Yet, as with his constitutionally annoying voice work for Fox's Animation Domination block, he can dream up a voice that really gets on your nerves, too. Funny voices don't always have to be lovable, you know. Proceeds benefit the Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab.
